SHM-SACD (Super High Material SACD) is the ultimate Super Audio CD that utilizes the materials and technologies that were developed for the SHM-CD to further enhance the audio-resolution. These discs are made with polycarbonate developed for the screen of the liquid crystal display. As it has a higher transparency, players can read the signal more faithfully. Also, it excels in fluidity, which enables you to cast a more accurate pit. What works wonders for a low resolution format such as CD should offer even greater sonic improvements in a real high resolution format such as SACD.
Bill Evans, best known for recording his albums as a trio with piano, bass and drums, uniquely records this 1962 album with the addition of the trumpet and guitar to create an unusual quintet alignment concentrating on standard tunes with bright tempos. Evans, along with "Philly" Joe Jones on drums, Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Jim Hall on guitar and Percy Heath on bass, plays original versions of I'll Never Smile Again, When You Wish Upon A Star, You Go To My Head and the title track. Interplay is a uniquely valuable addition to the catalog of perhaps the most important pianist in modern jazz.
